"There is so much groovy music here..." WHERE TO START???

I recommend to
start with the HLFP-Samplers (especially HLFP 04).
Here you will come to know many of the bands/musicians featured in this blog. If you like what you hear, you may check out more of their music later on.
(You may also click on the picture on the sidebar and you will find the original post with download links.)

There is also a "FOCUS ON..." section. Here you will find albums that in my opinion are absolutely great (***** = "five-stars-recordings") and that are essential listening and strongly recommended for download.

Please don't send me any more music submissions

and emails until further announcement!

I TRY to RE-UP some stuff that has been down from time to

time, but I still don't have enough time to

listen to/post much new stuff.


IMPRESSUM: see here!

SKY PICNIC's first full-length CD released

SKY PICNIC's first full length CD Farther In This Fairy Tale is available for purchase now. Official release date was 01-01-2010.

The cover is slightly reminiscent of the COUNT FIVE's late 60s parage-psych record (featuring the famous Psychotic Reaction), but guitarist/vocalist Chris Sherman assured me that this wasn't meant as a hommage, since none of the band members had known that cover. Musically it's much different to COUNT FIVE, much less garage-like and much more psychedelic in a classic sense: you'll find lots of traces of early PINK FLOYD or the BEATLES in their psychedelic phase.

Highlight is without a doubt the 12-minutes-plus spacey psych-prog epic "Universal Mind Decoder", also a live favourite by band and fans alike. (Listen to an excellent live version here.) But anyway, you won't find any bad track on this album. 46 minutes of sheer pleasure!
And a very good production soundwise: clear and strong.


You may buy Farther In This Fairy Tale here (US shipping only) or (for worlwide shipping) here.
And you really should do so! I love this album! An excellent debut by an excellent band.
I said it before and I'm going to say it again: SKY PICNIC are easily one of the best neo psychedelic bands around these days!
